Hi everybody,
 
I love this website. It seems to have everything you want to know about Barnoldswick and surrounding villages. I came to live here with my family in 2005 just because it felt like home. That is due to my Brotherton and Salkeld roots. 
 
My Great Grandfather, Richard Henry Brotherton was first recorded living in Earby in 1892 when he married my Great Grandmother, Isabella Salkeld. Isabella was the illegitimate daughter of William Taylor, schoolmaster and Rebecca Salkeld of Earby. Isabella's father's name had not been known in recent generations probably due to the fact she was born when her mother, Rebecca was just 14 years old. Bit of a scandle there then! It was only when I received a copy of Richard and Isabella's marriage certificate that one piece of the puzzle was solved. The other being any information on William Taylor.
 
The Salkelds were orginally from Grassington and Airton. Rebecca was the daughter of James and Margaret and one of originally twelve children. Eight sisters survived. The Salkelds pretty much remained in Earby living at Timothy Croft Cottage in 1871,  Selbourne Terrace, James Street and Aspen Lane through the other census years.
 
Richard Henry was born in Burnley and somehow came to meet Isabella who was living at Selbourne Terrace in 1891. No doubt through working in the mills.
 
In 1901 Richard and Isabella lived at 4 Brook Street Earby. They went on to have fourteen children, my Grandfather, James Brotherton being  the second eldest of the surving ten children. Sadly, my Great Grandparents lost four children in infancy whilst they were living in Green End Avenue.
 
My father recalls Isabella and her "table knocking". She was involved with the Earby Spiritualist Church, much to the amusement of my Grandfather.
 
At some point in the 1920's the Brotherton's descended on Barnoldswick living at 4 Gisburn Road at the time of my Great Uncle Robert's marriage and 10 Oak Terrace, Coates in 1932 at the time of Great Uncle John's marriage.
 
Richard Henry died in 1943 at Craven Street and Isabella survived him until 1947 at 5 Wellhouse Street. Isabella seemed to live a busy life having involvment with the Co-Operative Women's Guild of Barnoldswick and the local ramblers association. From photographs I have of her she was a very smart and well-liked lady.
 
My father, Dennis Leonard Brotherton, was born 1933 at 6 Hartley Street, Earby to James and Elizabeth Layfield. My father lost his older brother, James Layfield Brotherton with the sinking of the troop- ship HMR Lancastria on 17 June 1940 at the young age of just 20. His elder sister, Agnes married Harold Child in Bradford in 1939 at the time my Grandfather took the family there for a short time.  By 1940 they were back living at 40 Longroyd Road. My Grandfather remaining in Earby after the death of my Grandmother in  1951 at Boot Street.  Sadly, my Grandfather died the year before I was born in 1966 at Valley Gardens, Earby.
 
Well that's my very basic connection with Barnoldswick and Earby. I have lived here in Barlick now for about three years. Feels like forever. I am just getting familiar with the place and taking walks around to discover all the wonderful nooks and crannies and places of fascinating history. Just last Friday I strolled up the Forty Steps though I only counted 38. I shall have to recount. I have spent many hours reading Stanley's pages on local history. What a joy! I just wish I could take it all in.
 
I would welcome any comment on my ramblings or any news of any recollections of my Brotherton or Salkeld families. I am just glad to be home.
 
Very best regards
 
Amanda

Welcome to the site Amanda.  A very clear start to any search by our resident experts.  I shall have a furtle but not a common name in the district.

My dad, Elisha (Lisha), was brought up by his grandmother, Margaret Salkeld (nee Blackey) and lived with her, Rebecca, and a few more (including Isabella until her marraige) at Selbourne Terrace up to his first marraige in 1900. After Margaret died in 1911, `Aunt Becca' lived with my dad's sister Juliana (Ana) and her husband Joseph Brammall a few doors from us on Green End Avenue until her death in the mid thirties. Shortening names seemed to be a Salkeld (perhaps Earby) speciality.  I remember Aunt Becca  as a very good looking, gentle and gracious old lady but had no idea of her earlier troubles, or that `Our Bella' was her daughter,until Amanda contacted  me a few years ago.

Good afternoon everybody,

 Thank you so much for the replies to my little piece. Fortunately, I have quite a bit of information on my Brotherton and Salkeld roots. I have the Brotherton's beginnings in Burnley on all of the census returns, but thank you very much for your information.

The outline of my family tree is quite extensive, aprroximately 8000 names. I got a little carried away. It also includes Glasbys from Guiseley, Paynes from Brierfield and Burnley, Harris' from Lincolnshire, Sages from here there and everywhere. Duckworths and Eastwoods of Barnoldswick and Earby. I could go on but I won't.

My family tree feels like a skeleton though so I am looking to add a little flesh. I have spent another lovely afternoon wandering around Barlick tracing my roots where the family used to live. They certainly moved quite often although I suppose I can understand how that feels as I have moved house twice in three years. I went in search of the former site of Coates Cottages. My dad lived there in the 1950's just before they were demolished. I understand they were opposite the entrance to Coates Avenue but I couldn't find any trace. Was I in the right place?

Hello Ted, I hope all is well. I am still digging away at our little family looking for any little gem  of information. Family history can be so exciting even when we don't hail from royalty.

My next stop is Earby with my little camera and map. Can't wait. 

 

Best regards to all

Hi Amanda
      I went to school with a lad called Tom Layfield from Earby, about 1946 I should think. I'm now in New Zealand, and my daughter had a friend at school called Salkeld, her Father was from the Barlick/Earby area I think, he certainly knew it well. Probably related to you. He now lives in Hastings N.Z. and is blind.
Good luck with your research,
Gordon

Hi Gordon

 LaughingThank you for the posting. Tom Layfield was my Gran, Elizabeth Brotherton (nee Layfield)'s nephew (my dad's cousin). I can't place your daughter's friend though. I am sure  there must be a connection there somewhere.  There weren't any male Salkeld's who were my Great, Great Grandmother's siblings (all girls) but there were cousins who moved to Burnley. Joseph Salkeld (Salkild) was married to Annie Boocock from Earby so I suppose it's possible at some time they came back to Earby. I am very intrigued now. I would love to know his name as I could maybe connect him.

Very best regards

Amanda
